Vivo V27 Pro vs OnePlus 11R vs Realme GT Neo 3: Design
Vivo looks to stand out from the crowd with the unique colour-changing design of the Vivo V27 Pro. The AG glass finish, along with the special feature, makes the colour of the phone change in ultraviolet light. The camera module is vertically placed along with the Aura flashlight. The dimensions of 7.36mm thickness and 182 grams make it easy to hold in one hand.
The OnePlus 11R doesn’t have any colour-changing trick, but it features a curved design with a slim bezel display. The device weighs 205 grams and comes with a thickness of 8.53mm.
The camera module at the back is circular in shape like the OnePlus 11 model but the construction uses different materials.
Realme uses the GT series for its performance devices and you will straightaway notice the flashy colours with the racing stripe on the back panel. The front of the phone offers the punch hole cutout on the top-left and at the back you have a subtle triple-camera setup and the Realme branding at the bottom.
Looks are subjective but if you like something refreshing, the colour-changing tech from Vivo V27 Pro is definitely an eye catcher. While the other two mostly give you a premium body but with a dated design.

Performance-wise, you won’t find either of these devices lacking but it all comes down to the software experience, where OnePlus has a clear lead.

Vivo has added an Aura Light flash, which it claims helps with high quality portraits in low light. And if that wasn’t enough, you get a 50MP camera for selfies and video calling.

The Realme GT Neo 3 also offers a triple camera setup with a 50MP primary sensor along with an 8MP ultrawide sensor and a 2MP macro sensor. You also get a 16MP selfie camera, but the video quality is only limited to 4K at 30/60fps, 1080p at 30/60fps which is not as same as the OnePlus 11R.

So there you have it. Vivo focuses on design, the selfie camera and the unique Aura flashlight. OnePlus has given performance, cameras and charging the greater impetus. While Realme is all about performance.
After going through all these features, it is clear that all three phones will offer top-end performance for the price. But where we feel that OnePlus has the upper hand is the software experience, where it doesn’t offer any bloatware, which you can’t say for the other two brands. And that’s why the OnePlus 11R gets our vote.
